    Pros

    Easy to get hired because company is desperate for people.

    Cons

    • Fleet is in terrible condition – If management were to respect people more, people would respect their work environment more and take care of the trucks. The all-around mindset is, “if they don’t care, then I don’t care”
    • Management DOES NOT care about the people, you are just a number.
    • Company has no “pay for performance” approach
    • Company has no “set guidelines/standards” for annually pay increases
    • Upper management establishes no overall company vision
    • Policy/Procedures are not enforced leading to enormous risk, therefore General Manager’s habitually travel from site to site because they are all in a state of chaos!
    • Behaviors/Company will NEVER change because upper management remains the same. Mindset’s have been the same for years so nothing will change unless RVP’s, GM’s, etc. are filtered out!

    Advice to Management

    People Matter! – and we all have a choice of where we want to work. Unless GM’s and RVP’s are filtered out, the company will never turn over a new leaf to become a choice of where great talent seeks to become employed.
